So the other day a now famous Canadian was in Kelowna to give a speech, first to a high school and then at our local community theatre. Astronaut Chris Hadfield who came to fame through his trip to space and his social media entries while in space, visited the city. The event sold out rapidly and I did not get to go see him but as you can guess there was lots of media coverage about the event.
One thing I heard him say in the brief video clip on the news is "You really are something" and what understand (or took away) from that statement is, it does not matter what you have been or what you are, you are now and forever will be... something. That got me thinking.
The statement is true, it doesn't matter what you think you are because you are likely something different to almost every person in your life. But the fact remains you are something, whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not, whether you want it or not, you cannot change the fact that you are something. The choice then for you is determine what it is you are. Will you be a burden on society, will you be a success or a failure. Will you be the bread winner or the dependent. Are you the best at what you do or do you run in the middle of the pack.
First and foremost (I don't know who said this) "IN A WORLD WHERE YOU CAN BE ANYTHING BE YOURSELF". But then what? What are you, what are you going to be, what can you be. I love the fact that you have choice. You can be anything you want if you put your mind to it.
You can continue on doing what you are doing and getting what you are getting and you will be what you are... which is something. Or you can make some choices, make some changes and take some action and be something more. Either way it's up to you.
So please it some thought, understand that no matter what you do you are still something. And perhaps take a minute and figure out what you are and if it is what you want to be. If it is that is awesome, own it and tell the world. If you are going to be something no matter what....be what you want and make it awesome.
Answer the question, what am I?
